Puddle of Mudd’s Wes Scantlin Charged with Cocaine Possession
The bad news continues to pile on for Puddle of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin. As previously reported back in January, Scantlin was pulled over in Culver City, Calif. for a simple traffic violation. After showing signs of intoxication, his car was searched and a “controlled substance” was reportedly found, leading to his arrest.
New details have surfaced confirming what the mystery substance was. When the Los Angeles district attorney’s office filed their official complaint, the substance in question was listed as cocaine.
In addition to the prior felony charge, Scantlin also racked up two additional misdemeanors of driving without a license and being under the influence of a controlled substance.
According to the report, Scantlin has pled not guilty but will be back in court later this week and could face close to 5 years in jail.
